This clause has not been authorized for official release. We recommend deferring to the text of the clause in your RFP or contract.

(a) This clause is in implementation of Article XVI of the Status of Forces Agreement between the Republic of Korea and the United States of America, granting Contractors exemption from Republic of Korea taxes for petroleum products (POL) utilized on USFK acquisitions in the Republic of Korea.

At the time this contract is awarded, the Contractor shall make a final nomination in writing of its point of purchase for POL products to be used on this contract. If the Contractor intends to purchase directly from an oil company refinery, it may nominate any of the three ROK oil companies below which have agreed to sell to Contractor FOB refinery at the SET-exempt price.

(1) Hyundai Oil Refinery Co., Ltd.:
Dong-Inchon District Tax Office
 ATTN: POL Tax Administrator Inchon City, Korea

(2) SK Corporation:

(3) LG Caltex Company:

(b) If the contractor instead intends to purchase its POL products from an individual gasoline station, the Contracting Officer will advise the contractor as to which individual gasoline stations will sell to it at the SETexempt price. The contractor shall specify from which of those stations it will purchase. In addition to specifying the oil company/gas station, the Contractor shall state the estimated quantity and the amount of POL to be purchased from each refinery/gas station. The USFK Contracting Officer will verify the reasonableness of the amounts of POL products claimed for use on the contract and, based on this verification, the USFK Responsible Officer will issue USFK POL Tax Exemption Coupons. If the Contractor wishes to purchase from an individual gas station, it will be required to make advance payment for the amount of POL covered by the coupons. Advance payment will be at the SET-exempt price and will be made to the gas station(s) previously nominated. Representatives from the nominated gas station(s) shall be present at the issuing session. They will collect the advance payments, mark “paid” on the back of the original copy of the coupons issued, and provide the purchasing Contractor with tax invoices to be used by the Contractor to obtain SET refund from its governing ROK District Tax Office. All coupons for construction contracts will be issued at the time of award. Coupons for requirements-type contracts will be issued on a delivery order increment basis or on a monthly basis. Pre-selected oil company refineries will sell their POL products at the SET-exempted prices upon presentation of the coupons. Individual gas stations, which have previously collected POL payment in advance will accept the pre-paid USFK POL Tax Exemption Coupons from contractors and will provide the POL amounts reflected on tendered coupons without any further charge.
